Keeping up with the maintenance of your car’s brake system is essential for the safety of yourself and other drivers on Kansas City roads and highways. Just as you need to monitor the color of your brake fluid and replace it at certain intervals, you will eventually need to replace your brake pads. When the time arrives, you’ll probably wonder: how much is it to replace brake pads? Our service department answers this question and more in the guide below!
Brake pad replacement costs will vary based on the make and model of each Shawnee Mission driver’s car. On average, a brake pad replacement costs $150 per axle. But this is just the average – the wider range for brake pad replacement is about $100 to $300 per axle.
Some brake pads are made from organic materials, which are on the lower side of the price range. Higher-priced brake pads consist of more durable materials like metal, and while they may be costlier, you’ll get what you pay for with greater heat resistance and better resilience against brake fade.

Many Overland Park drivers use the terms interchangeably, but your car’s brakes and brake pads are two separate components.
Most brake pads can last between 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Depending on how you drive, you might get additional or fewer miles from your brake pads. If you tend to slam the brakes down rather than coasting to stop, you’re straining the brake pads quite a bit and they may not last as long as they’re intended to.
There are some very clear signals you’ll notice when the brake pads need to be replaced:
If your car is exhibiting any of the aforementioned warning signs, you should schedule a service appointment without delay. The service techs at Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission will inspect your brake system and if the brake pads need replacing, we can do so in a timely manner.
